The apparently London-born rapper, 21 Savage, is being released from Immigration and Customs custody today after a week in ICE detention.
According to his attorney, Charles Kuck, 21 Savage, born She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, will be released this morning.
21 Savage was arrested earlier this month when it came to light that he had over stayed his visa and was in the country illegally.
His attorneys, Kuck, Dina LaPolt and Alex Spiro, issues a statement on behalf of 21 Savage, thanking his supporters:
“21 Savage asked us to send a special message to his fans and supporters — he says that while he wasn’t present at the Grammy Awards, he was there in spirit and is grateful for the support from around the world and is, more than ever, ready to be with his loved ones and continue making music that brings people together.”
It should also be noted that 21 Savage has applied for a U-visa. The application was filed back in 2017. A U-visa is available to those who have been a victim of a crime in the United States, suffered physical or mental injury as a result of a crime and who are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in an investigation or criminal prosecution.
